The Lamp with the Shortest Lifespan

Which type of lamp has the shortest life expectancy?

A: fluorescent lamp

B: HID lamp

C: incandescent lamp

D: halogen lamp

Answer:

The lamp with the shortest lifespan is the incandescent lamp.

The lamp with the shortest life expectancy is the incandescent lamp. Compared to the other options, incandescent lamps have a significantly shorter lifespan. This is primarily due to the type of lighting technology they use. Incandescent lamps work by heating a wire filament until it glows, a process that causes rapid deterioriation of the filament. While other lamp technologies such as fluorescent, HID (High-Intensity Discharge) and halogen lamps have more efficient processes, leading to a longer lifespan.
